Li Auto delivered its 500,000th vehicle at a delivery center in Beijing's Shunyi district on September 27, the company announced today on Weibo.

Li Auto delivered a record 34,914 vehicles in August, bringing cumulative deliveries since inception to 465,499, data monitored by CnEVPost show.

Li Auto currently sells the five-seat Li L7, as well as the six-seat Li L8 and Li L9, which are all extended-range electric vehicles (EREVs), essentially plug-in hybrids, while Nio and Xpeng currently sell models that are all battery electric vehicles (BEVs).

Li Auto's 500,000th vehicle delivered was a Li L7, and the milestone comes 46 months after the company delivered its first vehicle at the end of 2019, it said today.

Li Auto's first production vehicle was the Li One, also an EREV, a model that was discontinued last year.
